Most of my work attempts to merge art, architecture, technology, and sustainable design, into one unique experience. I have not been educated as an architect, but rather as an artist. As an artist, I often use architecture as my art form. Much of my work, in one way or another, explores new ways of thinking about sustainability and interactivity. I always approach my art and design as an inventor, rather then as a stylist. Sometimes I attempt to invent systems and components that can be assembled and reassembled in many different ways. I also enjoy developing architectural art through a process of creating forms from symbolic references, which relate directly to the specific site and/or function of the project. As a result, usually an aesthetic evolves that is totally unexpected. In general, I want to reinvent the world around me, and share that vision with others, in an attempt to make the planet a better place for all of humanity. My work has been featured widely in the media and some of it has been exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
